March 3, 2024. you don’t win them all unless you’re Tom Brady.

Three-day tour, three-days in the snowcats in Conrad Creek. It doesn’t happen often when we don’t get in the aircraft whatsoever for three days but due to the strongest storm of the season we skied 24 runs in the Conrad Creek area since Friday Morning. A true luxury to have the snowcats and the cat […]

March 2, 2024. as advertised.

There was a lot of hype with this storm system: strong winds, heavy snow and a prolonged event forecasted for nearly a week prior to the storms arrival. It delivered as advertised. 16″ of new snow overnight, with continued snow through the day and ripping winds last night and through the day at both the […]

March 1, 2024. like a lion.

Winds battered the lodge overnight with gusts in the 50-60 mph range for the last 24 hours. Strong winds remained this morning during orientations, winds strong enough we didn’t feel comfortable to open the hangar door so we did the aircraft orientation inside. Conrad came up big again, with the skiing improving each run as […]

February 29, 2024. sneak attack, thank you February.

Strong winds were forecast to begin mid-morning today. Typically, on the single-day and first-day of the three-day tour, we have a delayed start because of the safety orientations to get through. We made a plan last night, got a jump on the orientations after dinner and were able to be on the mountain an hour […]

February 28, 2024. hammer down.

A day in Thorpe Creek. Seven runs- five of them being extra vertical and opening the Shadow Line for the first time in 2024. A brilliant tour in a season filled with brilliant tours. A full single-day arrives tonight with an incoming storm system likely through the weekend. There appears to be a flying window […]

February 27, 2024. sweet surprise.

Yesterday’s wind brought today’s reward. We woke up to 4-6 inches of snow at the lodge with a foot of new snow at upper elevations in our terrain we skied today. We started the day with three runs in Conrad Creek in the aircraft then moved to Talbot Creek for the rest of the day. […]

February 26, 2024. windy.

Strong winds, with consistent gusts in the 50-60 mph range throughout the day ahead of a strong low pressure system moving in this evening. Winds so strong we couldn’t even open the hangar door for an aircraft orientation. Conrad Creek and the snowcats came up big, yet again. Seven runs in Conrad Creek with a […]

February 25, 2024. put a cherry on top.

We finished one of the best tours of the season by skiing 5 extra vertical runs in Thorpe Creek today. Fred Alldredge, who has been a guide at Ruby for 20 seasons called the tour “legendary.” Great skiing, incredible flying. 3 straight days in the aircraft skiing 10 runs Friday, 9 Saturday and 5 Sunday. […]

February 24, 2024. let’s cut to the chase.

Long and Segunda Canyon for only the second time this year, opening several new runs for the first time in 2024 in the Southern Ruby terrain. Shallow, cold powder skiing on each run, nine runs today, ten yesterday and some of the best skiing you can get in a place where the nearest people were […]

February 23, 2024. like Jordan.

Ten runs on day one of the three-day tour. After the slow morning of orientations, we got in the groove skiing in Snell Canyon, and Lamoille Canyon. Fast, shallow powder skiing on each run showing a big returning crew another round of the magic. It’s not often there is no wind at 11k but that […]
